Re: New Moog module photos

You also have a 'P' in front of my name there Dave... :D Very curious, but where in the world did you get that "Unknown Prototype VCO"!? I'm sure you aren't telling all of your sources, but, wow, what a find... Wendy Carlos has a set of unique "rev. 2 Minimoog based" oscillators with 901B faceplate...

I can't imagine they are planning on making loads of these.
I think they have a set number of new old stock case parts from the original Moog factory (via Mike Bucki), and that's all they're going to make in that format.

Dotcom uses Mogami? They don’t mention it on their site.
Probably not to alienate past purchasers. Like they didn't mention when they started using Switchcraft enclosed jacks instead of the cheap Chinese open frame garbage they started out with.

Re: Behringer 2600

Maybe they will start selling a dedicated synth effects box like Dreadbox with a real spring in it. Interesting they changed to the black and orange, I guess to differentiate from the Korg. I’m partial to the blue face myself but they all look good. My Odyssey desktop is white. B seems keen to rele...

Re: Behringer 2600

Is it really that much of a failure point? All this other gear with spring reverb tanks. I've never had one go bad. It sounds like an excuse to get down production costs as much as possible. Less than $2 worth of LCD screen and effects IC cost instead. Goodness knows- I mean, they're more volatile ...

Re: DIY dotcom wiring harness

You need a special tool to punch down wire into those connectors, though. They make two different kinds, and the cheap one is just about worthless. You're much better off buying them from someone else pre-made than trying to do a few DIY. https://www.te.com/usa-en/product-59803-1.html https://www.te...

I think part of it is that they didn't want to be responsible for a spring tank and all that entails. Behringer aren't famous for their QA and low return rate to dealers, after all. The $10 they would have to pay for them wholesale if they didn't make them in-house would probably be 1/4 of the part...

Also, wow, that reverb.. it'd be ok in a budget Euro module, but in a 2600? It's an insult. The target market might not care, but a spring reverb is conspicuous by its absence.

Re: Moog Vocoder

I wonder if they're using new old stock case parts from the inventory they bought off Mike Bucki. The original Moog must have made a big production run of them from that series of rackmount stuff they did.

It is also important to remember that part of the patent agreement that gives exclusive rights for a period of years also makes the idea free for anyone to use after the patent period expires.

Re: Multimeter suggestions?

I used other brands for years, then I finally bought a Fluke and wondered why I fucked around doing it for so long. It's not just accuracy in measurement, it's HOW it calculates (and QUICKLY) those measurements leading to a much better experience. And I second the eBay recommendation.
